How do you fit it all in?!

 
#1 How do you fit it all in?!

NoName

So, I'm a Senior Consultant in a Big 4, been here about 3.5 years. This is my first 'proper' job - I started on the grad scheme.

That context is basically irrelevant, but hopefully exposing my relatively junior grade will stop me being flamed by ZB et al.

I'm happy here, but have started entertaining thoughts about moving to another consulting Firm.

I've worked on about 6 projects in my time here. My question is, how can you condense all of that experience into one previous role in an external CV? All my roles have been quite different, so I'm finding it difficult to ascertain how I can demonstrate my experiences in 5/6 bullets.

P.S. I'm well aware that I could find this out myself and the ways to do so, but I thought I'd ask the question here to see if anyone's got any insight.

P.P.S. Shout out to Mr. Cool - I've never posted here but read regularly, and really enjoy and learn a lot from your posts. And that other guy that's always got really good posts.. can't remember his name. It'll come to me.

Thanks!

Mars A Day to NoName (#1)

6 Projects in one firm will do a 2 page CV nicely. Just detail the projects in turn according to industry, and detail the project objective, what you did, and the result you achieved. It can help if you make sure you have industry standard terminology in there which will also give it better 'scan value' - i.e. look suitable for similar roles on a quick glance as people tend to look for a set list of terms for a role.

Unless you have an MBA from a top school or went to Oxbridge you can now relegate your education to below your experience section. Don't waste space on a meaningless personal profile at the top, and boil down your experience into maybe 3 or 4 bullets in a cover letter which you tailor to the specific application - this would be where you bring out either generic experience (eg highlight your BPR experience regardless of industry) or depth in one sector (eg 2 projects in consumer goods) etc.
